Brakes lights 95 pathfinder dont work


Check bulbs. If the fuse was out none of the 3 would work. Either a bulb or wiring issue.

Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working


Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If the lower two bulbs fail no lower brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say two brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove either of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.

Checking the Turn Signal Switch: Most American cars are designed to have the brake light switch wiring intergraded into the turn signal switch. Because the brake light bulb and the turn signal bulb are one and the same the turn signal switch interrupts the brake light circuit and installs the blinker signal circuit when the turn signal switch is activated. If this switch fails it will not allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring. To test for this condition a car repair manual is needed to test incoming and outgoing electrical current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at any outgoing brake light wires the turn signal switch has probably failed.

Why do brake lights stay on while diving and cruise control doesn't work?


If the brake light switch connected to the brake pedal has failed, the brake lights are stuck on which fools the cruise control into disengaging.

My signal lights and brake light along with the cruise control stopped working


Sounds like something happened to the multi-function switch or the wiring harness in the steering column.

if the brakes light is on all the time, you may be low on brake fluid. Top up the brake master cylinder and see if the light goes out. If it doesn't go out, you may have air in your anti-lock brake system. This is very difficult to purge out and usually requires the dealer with a special brake system bleeding tool to do it.
